5:23 pm
so if you have any business offshore you will see 10-foot swells. these are the forecast overnight lows. kind of chilly but not that frosty. you will find some frost. the frost the thing i'm most concerned about. visibilities are variable. some areas had some okay visibility. tomorrow morning is the same thing. wednesday morning like this morning. clouds tomorrow morning. then a burn off we should see plenty of sunshine tomorrow afternoon. and temperatures you know 50s, upper 50s kind of a thing. wednesday looks like a very nice day. nicer than today. more sunshine. and temperatures just maybe a degree or two warmer in some places. the cool showers show up as we get into thursday. it is a cooler system. and i always tell you that. you get a cooler weather system and they hold less water. it's just a higher latitude storm. that means lower snow levels but as far as precipitation and major rainfall and major snowfall not really in the works. here's the computer model. i'm going to run it through as
